Minute repeating chronograph in solid 18k gold hunter case.
Switzerland, circa 1900s.
Diameter is 51mm, height without bow is 62mm, weight is 90 grams.

Movement seems to be production of Le Phare / Barbezat-Baillot, based on Cal. 115.
It's overall good quality, slider repeating movement, jewelled to the centre wheel.

Barbezat-Baillot was one of the largest and most innovative Swiss manufacturers of complicated watches. In the late XIX, company patented the governor regulator and many other improvements.
In 1885 Barbezat-Baillot registered and started using trademark Le Phare. Since 1905 all the Barbezat-Baillot company was renamed to Le Phare.
As Charles Barbezat-Baillot refused to support the Swiss armaments industry, about 1915 he sold his company to Zenith S.A., for ethical reasons.

Case bears Swiss hallmarks for 18k gold.
Dials looks to be solid silver.

The watch appears to be in good condition.
Movement is in running condition, though I don't guarantee time keeping.
Repetition is working as it should.

Dial has some minor marks.
The case is on a thin side and has some dents, thought nothing critical.
Overall nice watch in good condition.
